Crystal City Printing Museum

All year round 9:00 - 18:00 by appointment
This designated Heritage Site Building is probably the oldest in town, built about 1880. As you walk through the door, the wonderful sounds, and ink and oil smells of the original printing and typesetting machines fill the air. You’ll feel as if you could actually be back in 1881 when publisher Thomas Greenway and Co. issued their first “Rock Lake Herald”, later to become the “Crystal City Courier”.
The Museum is completely operational and you’ll see the presses in action, learn about the painstaking printing processes, and even take home a memento of your visit.
The museum is staffed and run by volunteers. Tours are given year-round upon request; naturally such an experience takes preparation, so to arrange your tour, please call ahead to:
